Used in conjunction with the ACTAtek3 unit, the external secure I/O provides an additional layer of security for access control systems when the ACTAtek3 terminals are exposed to general access. An encrypted serial link from the ACTAtek3 unit connected to the external secure I/O ensures the door release mechanism cannot be operated directly. This means that even when there is a vandal attack or someone removes the ACTAtek3 terminal by force, the external secure I/O Secure Relay will maintain operation and keep the door mechanism locked against unauthorized access or “hot wiring” of the lock.
Additional IO functionality includes four assignable inputs for use with alarm disconnects, alarm/tamper triggers, Request-to-Exits and more.
We strongly recommend this option for all high security areas.
